Alix Are Married.
INCIDENTS OP THE CEREMONY
Crowds Line the Streets of St. Petersburg
and Lustily Cheer the Emperor and
Ills Bride -The Troop Assigned to
Keep order Are Unarmed.
By the United Press.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 16. At 1.30 o'clock
this afternoon the guns from the fort
ress announced that Czar Nicholas II.
and Princess Allx of Hesse-Darmstadt
were married. Before 7 o'clock this
morning large crowds of people assem
bled on the Nevasky Prospect In order
to secure places along the route of the
wedding procession. From the Anitch
koff palace to the winter palace the
avenue was lined with troops.
The Imperial council, the imperial
ministers and the foreign ambassadors
and their wives, who were assembled
In St. George's hall in the winter palace,
did not take part In the procession, but
were conducted by Prince Dolgorouki
direct to the cathedral. That edifice is
only 120 feet deep by sixty feet wide and
scarcely furnished accommodation for
the royal and princely guests and the
other dlnltarles present. From its
heavily glided doors to the rich bronze
and gold gates of the Ikonostas the In
terior of the edifice was a marvel of
gorgeousness. Immediately In front of
the Ikonostas, upon a crimson dais,
stood the Arch Priest Janyscheff, the
chaplain of the late czar, attended by
two priests. When the rings were ex
changed the arch priest took the two
rings, which had previously been placed
upon golden plates upon the altar, and
placed them upon the respective ring
fingers of the bride. After the third
exchange of the rings the nuptial bene
diction was pronounced. This was fol
lowed by prayers for the first time for
the orthodox and autocratic emperor,
Nicholas, and for 'his orthodox wife,
Alexandra Feodorovna, as the Princess
Allx will hereafter be known. The cere
mony was concluded at 1.30 p. m.
Kissed by Their Relatives.
After the ceremony the newly wedded
pair approached the widowed Czarina,
before whom they offered thanks. They
then received the congratulations of all
present In the order of their rank, the
couple receiving kisses from their rela
tives among the guests.
The procession then re-formed and
returned to the winter palace in the
order In which It came, the czar and
his bride bowing right and left in rec
ognition of the congratulations they re
ceived in passing through the various
halls until, they reached the Malachite
hall. The bride looked pale and tired
but beautiful. Her ornaments were
conspicuously splendid. The crown of
,diamond. which she wore was sur
mounted by a diamond studded cross.
The czar wore the red uniform of a
general of Hussars. The pair proceeded
to the Nicholas hall and at the foot of
the grand staircase entered a golden
and white coach, drawn by four white
horses, and were driven to the cathe
dral, accompanied by a small escort.
During the drive of half a mile they
were vociferously cheered by the enor
mous crowds which lined the roadway,
guns booming and bells ringing joyous
After offering up prayers In the cath
edral the pair at 2.15 p. m. drove to the
Anitchkoff palace. There was no pro
cession in the streets. The crowd was
most orderly and the troops assigned
to keep order were without arms.
In honor of the wedding 40,000 poor
people of this city will dine today at
the expense of the czar. All the schools
have been closed fof three da vs.
According to current reports, the czar
has caused consternation among the
officers of his household by leaving the
palace unattended and walking through
the streets in a military mantle, or
walking arm in arm with the first of
ficer who recognizes him. On Saturday
he went for a walk with Princess Alix,
entered a glove-store In front of the
Anitchkoff palace, and made several
purchases. On leaving he was recosr-
nlzedby the people and loudly cheered.
TRAGEDY IN CHINATOWN.
I.cc Gon Shoots I.ee Hung Quong, Inflict-

By the JUod Press.
PhiladeMiia, Nov. 26. A quarrel with
a tragic eliding between Chinamen took
place this afternoon In the grocery store
of Lee Hung Quong, at 926 Race street,
when the proprietor was shot in the
head and mortally wounded by Lee Gon
Yeura, the proprietor of a laundry.
Quong was about 04 years of age and is
one of the most influential residents of
Chinatown. "fe is known as "Judge,"
and his countrymen have referred to
him for settlement many of the dis
putes that arose among them. Recent
ly Lee Gon was arrested for writing
scandalous letters. Quong Interested
himself 4n the man's behalf and spent
considerable money In his defense. Yes
terday he heard that Lee Gon was ne
gotiating to sell his laundry, and he
called upon him today and tried to re
cover some of the money that he had
spent In his behalf. The "Judge" was
unsuccessful and a violent quarrel took
place. The "Judge" returned home and
Lee Gon remained In his shop brooding
over the quarrel.
This afternoon he started for the
"Judge's" store and on his way bought
a revolver and a box of cartridges. He
found the "Judge" In his grocery store
and the quarrel was renewed. Passers
by on Race street were startled by four
shots and Lee Gon ran out of the store
and down the street. He only got a
short distance, however, when he was
arrested. Of the four shots fired at the
"Judge," but one took effect, and that
struck him in the head, inflicting a fatal
wound. Lee Hung Quong was known
to fame as the only Chinaman in Phila

INCREASE OF FRAUDS.
Lottery Business Is Booming Through the

Washington, Nov. 26. The annual re
port of Judge John L. Thomas, assist
ant attorney general for the postofflce
department, treats at some length of
the enormous Increase for the fiscal
year ended June 30 in the number of
companies engaged In conducting lot-
terles and fraudulent schemes. Against
these concerns 223 "fraud" orders were
Issued by the postmaster general pro
hibiting the delivery of registered pack
ages and the payment of money orders

The lottery business through express
companies has increased enormously
during the year in the direct ratio of
the decrease of that business through

ommends the enactment of legislation
that Is now pending before congress
relative to the subject.
LOOKS BAD IX PRINT.
Published Accounts of the American Out
rages Displcusc the Turks and Ameri
can Papers Arc Excluded.
By the United Tress.
Constantinople, Nov. 26. The recent
edict calling for the seizure at the fron
tier of foreign newspapers containing
accounts of the Armenian massacres
prohibits the entry for ever of any
American newspaper Into Turkey. This
action on the part of the Turkish gov
ernment is supposed to be due to the
attitude assumed by the American
press on the Armenian question.
Washington, Nov. 26. The edict per
manently excluding all American news
papers from Turkey, has not yet been
officially communicated to the Turkish
legation here. Secretary Norlghlan
Effendl, who is In charge of the legation
during the absence of Minister Mavroy
enl Bey, expressed surprise today that
the edict should have such a scope' as
to be a permanent exclusion of Ameri
can newspapers, and thinks the report
may prove overdrawn in this respect.
There is a press censorship in Turkey,
he says, and a press bureau is main
tained by the government for the pur
pose of reading all papers and seeing
that the press laws are observed.
Superintendent Brooks of the foreign
mall service says that the agreement
signed by all nations In the Postal
union provides that any nation can ex
clude any mall whloh the government
deems detrimental to ltB Interests.
At the state department no question
Is raised as to the authority of the
Turkish government to take the action
indicated. Nearly every European
power has asserted and exercised such
authority In the past.
DEBS IS PEACEFUL.
He Will Not Fight President Gompcrs at
the Coming Convention.
By the United Press.
Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 26. Replying
to the Associated Press' recent story
that the American Railway union will
fight Gompers In the American Federa
tion of Labor convention at Denver,
President Debs, of the American Rail
way union, writing to a Milwaukee cor
"It la totally untrue that I am to fight
President Gompers In the coming conven
tion, or that the American Railway union
is to attack the American Federation of
Labor. Whatever differences there may
be relating to policy, principles, or meth
ods, between the two organizations, they
enjoy each other's confidence and respect,
and the American Railway union will do
nothing, either through Its officers, or oth
erwise, to mar such harmonious relations.
The American Railway union harbors no
resentment; It Btands for the solidarity of
all labor and if in the course of events the
American Federation of Labor In any con
flict it may have with the plutocratic
power, requires the aid (not the vapid,
meaningless thing in labor called 'sym
pathy and moral support,' but the active
and actual reinforcement) of the Ameri
can Railway union, it shall be freely given
so far as it lies In my power to give it."

Wilkes-Barre, Pa Nov. 26. Harring
ton's museum was the scene of a very
exciting occurrence tonight. Among
the attractions this week is a trained
Hon, named Wallicker, in charge of a
Nubian, Veno. The latter enters the
lion's cage at every performance. About
10 o'clock this evening when the Nubian
went into the cage the lion suddenly
sprang upon him. Before he could es
cape the enraged beast struck him down
with his paw and jumped upon him,
fastening his teeth In the man's arm.
He yelled with pain and fright.
The large audience became panic
stricken. Men, women and children
made a mad rush for the door, fearing
that the lion would break out and at
tack them. Meantime the attendants,
arming themselves with whatever came
to hand, surrounded the cage and en
deavored to beat the lion away from his
victim. The taste of blood had wrought
him up to a state of fury and It was
some time before they succeeded in
driving him Into a corner. When Veno
was liberated he presented a bloody
sight. His right arm was badly lacer
ated, his hand bitten clear through, and
his clothing almost torn from his bodyv
He will recover, however, although the
wounds are very painful.

Incomplete reports of massacres by the
Bltlls, Sept. 26, 1894. Troops have
been massed in the region of the large
plain near us. Some sickness broke out
among them which took off two or three
victims every few days. It was a good
excuse for establishing the quarantine
around, with its Income from bribes;
charges, and the Inevitable rise in the
price of the already dear grain.
I suspect that one ret son for placing
quarantine was to hinder the informa
tion as to what all those troops were
about.ln that region. There seems little
doubt that there has been repeated in
the region back of the Moosh what took
place in '77 In Bulgaria. The sickening
details are beginning to come in. As in
that case it has been the innocent who
have been the greatest sufferers. Forty
eight villages are said to have been
wholly blotted out.
Cholera Is Raging.
Bltlls, Oct. 3. No letter from Harpoot
this week, but things have been moving

know how matters are. A letter re

shows that Indeed a virulent form of
cholera is spreading In that city. From
twenty-five to thirty-five deaths a day
occur. As the time goes on, the extent
of the slaughter seems to be confirmed
as greater than was first supposed.

of the North End, yesterday Andrew
Smith and Joseph Keturisky were com
mitted to the county jail to await the
reHult of the beating which they had
inflicted upon Charles Hlack In a Penn
avenue saloon Sunday. Hlack Is in the

Evidence given at the hearing showed
that Smith, with the assistance of Ke

was a prominent witness against Smith
three months ago when the latter was
acquitted of the charge of helnfr an
accessory to the murder of Tomalinus
